The actual trailhead is on Cholla Lane, but you can't park there, so you have to find a spot on Invergordon or another side street. Then just follow the masses to the trailhead.

Your typical tourist trail... Go ahead and get it off the list!

Good climb, but not nearly as good as Echo Canyon.

My first hike and in my opinion a good one to start with. Not overly hard and the views are great. I can see why people do this daily.
